When most of us want to find information online, we start out by visiting our favorite search engine. But when doing pure research, search engines often bring up so many links to irrelevant or outdated pages that it can make you crazy. This computer book lists thousands of informational and reference sites that help you zero in on the exact information you're looking for. From government records to commercial research sites, Find It Online shows you where to go for information on people, products, and companies. There's little direct advice, but the references are so exhaustive that you'll know at a glance if this book is for you. I always advise buying books like this in person, rather than online or by mail, so you can skim through it to see if you can use it.
